These records document the activities of the Assistant Secretary for Public Service in the 1970s and 1980s, with a small amount of material dating back to 1968. The records concern the offices reporting to the Assistant Secretary for Public Service, including the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum, the Smithsonian Institution Press, the Office of Public Affairs, Smithsonian Magazine, the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, the Office of Symposia and Seminars, the Resident Associates, the Division of Performing Arts, the Office of Interdisciplinary Studies, the Office of Telecommunications, the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, and the Visitors' Information and Associates' Reception Center. The relations of the Assistant Secretary for Public Service with other Smithsonian offices are also well documented.
